Golf cruise – Fascinating greens in Arabia

Sat 9 Apr Muscat – Almouj Golf Club
Greg Norman, the “Great White Shark”, has essentially built a links course in the sand, conjuring a truly special golfing oasis which straddles the beach and desert. Every drive is an experience: here, the local vistas were perfectly integrated with each hole in order to give players surprisingly beautiful views of the landscape throughout the course.

Mon 11 Apr Doha – Doha Golf Club
A mammoth in the desert. The course, built in the heart of the local desert landscape, is known for its sometimes very sizeable lengths ranging from between 380 and 450 m. The 18th hole measures 538 m from the tee to the green. Long hitters have a significant advantage here.

Wed 13 Apr Abu Dhabi – Yas Links Golf Club
This links course, built on a peninsula, is a real challenge. Especially the 18th hole, a dog-leg with a majestic length of almost 600 m. The shortcut on the perfect line down the fairway leads through the neighbouring desert.

Thu 14 Apr Dubai – Emirates Golf Club, Majlis Course
One of the oldest courses in the region. Both 18-hole courses (Majils and Faldo) meet international standards. Golf’s greatest players have played against the skyline of Dubai on the Majils course at the annual Dubai Desert Classics.
